2010 SAG Awards – Penelope Cruz In L’Wren Scott

Back To Back Black Award
Much like last year, Penelope Cruz has opted for back to back black looks on the red carpet during awards season.

As much as I like stars to mix things up a little, I do love Pen in this L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 black beaded embellished fitted dress with fringed shoulders.

Her hair is elegantly swept over one shoulder, and her make-up is – as always – annoyingly flawless.

Her look was paired with Dana Davis black satin knotted front heels and Chopard jewels.

This picture really isn’t doing her justice. She looked better on screen.

More From The Golden Globes Red Carpet

Penelope Cruz wore a Armani Privé Spring 2005 black gown with a mermaid tail.

I like the lace the detail around the bust a shoulder line but I’m a little bored by Penelope in black again.

I feel that she’s trying to channel her Spanish roots here but it somehow looks a little messy.

Glenn Close sparkled in this black Oscar de la Renta floor length Fall 2009 dress.

I just feel it isn’t special enough for the Globes.

The bust line of the dress and the bare shoulders make her arms look too muscular.

Rose Byrne wore a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2010 dress in a deep purple with a bow detail at the waist.

I’m glad Rose decided to wear the dress in this colour but I apart from that I’m left feeling a little bored.

Kate Hudson walked the red carpet in a Marchesa Bridal Spring 2010 gown with sculptured band bodice and bottom flared skirt.

I just can’t make you my mind about this. Part of me is thinking “what the hell?” and the other part doesn’t mind it so much.

I’ve never really got why stars wear bridal looks on the red carpet but I’m actually quite drawn to the sculpting on the dress.

The shoes are way too heavy though.

Jaime Pressly is shimmering in this Kevan Hall Spring 2010 dress with a split up one side.

I prefer this dress on the model as I feel that it has more of an impact against brunette hair.

I don’t think the champagne coloured clutch compliments this dress at all.

Jenna Fischer wore a dress from Halston’s Spring 2010 collection.

I like it but I don’t love it. I just can’t see how this dress is event appropriate. This is a star’s chance to shine and this dress is never going to deliver that moment.

“Nine” Rome Screening

Penelope Cruz made a vast improvement from her earlier disastrous photocall look.

This time she looks gorgeous wearing a Armani Prive Fall 2006 Couture creme beaded halter dress, with matching gold peep-toes.

I love the embroidered detail on her dress.

It’s official.

The promo tour for the movie “Nine” has not even come close to living up to my expectations.

Marion Cotillard wore a black Vionnet dress which neither excites nor delights.

The first thing that honestly came to mind when I saw Marion was a monk.

I’m wishing she prayed for the House of Dior.

*BIG SIGH*

Sophia Loren you were our only remaining hope to bring some glamour to the promo tour.

Instead of dazzling us in couture or a custom-made gown, you give us big bird.

Runway To “Nine” Rome Photocall – Penelope Cruz In Dolce & Gabbana

Today in Rome Marion Cotillard, Sophia Loren and Penelope Cruz – three of the most stylish women from the hit movie “Nine” – arrived at the St Regis Grand Hotel for a photocall.

Unfortunately only 2 brought their style with them.

I’m sorry but I just can’t love Penelope Cruz in this Dolce & Gabbana dress from the waist down.

The fringed hem feel makes her look like a contestant on “Dancing With The Stars”, plus the tights water down the look.

If your going to jump on this “underwear as outerwear” trend it’s all not nothing.

I’m happy to see Sophia finally make an appearance. She’s chic as ever wearing a black skirt suit.

Marion keeps things very neutral wearing a white v neck dress, paired with black patent heels.

I think it’s going to take me a while to get over Pen’s look.

Runway To “2nd Annual Robert Garlock Screening” – Penelope Cruz In Naeem Khan

The big guns are back yeaa.

I feel like I’ve been on a red carpet detox, so it was great to see Penelope Cruz look outstanding as she attended the 2nd Annual Robert Garlock Screening to introduce her latest movie “Nine”.

The Spanish beauty looked beautiful wearing a white crystal web beaded Naeem Khan Spring 2010 dress.

The dress has been modified slightly to include a nude lining, which protects her modesty and also allows the crystal details to stand out even more.

I love make-up. So subtle and light and complementary to her gorgeous dress.

Unfortunately I don’t have a full length photo, so I will imagine she wore the same heels as the model.

Hoping to see more Naeem Khan magic on the red carpet this year.

Thank you to Cory from the NYU Tisch School for this exclusive photo.

Runway To Oprah – The Ladies Of “Nine”

The cast of “Nine” were on Oprah recently to promote the musical which will be released after Christmas.

Each actress looked beautiful.

Kate Hudson wore a stunning L’Wren Scott fitted black dress with a pearl necklace.

She was very coy talking about A-Rod when questioned by Oprah.

On Wednesday People.com reported Hudson and A-Rod split a few weeks ago so that was probably why.

Marion Cotillard wore a leopard print Isabel Marant Fall 2009 dress, which has been worn by Eva Herzigova and Shakira.

Penelope Cruz wore a cute white tweed dress with tights.

Nicole Kidman was the one who surprisingly opted for the brightest colour wearing a L’Wren Scott fuchsia headmistress dress we’ve seen in black and white and teal.

Of all these looks, I’m totally in love with Marion.  Penelope’s look is my least favourite as she added tights to such a summery look.

“Nine” New York Premiere

You may remember I wasn’t particularly crazy about the trains on all dresses in the Chanel Fall 2009 Couture collection, but on Kate Hudson I like it.

The reason is because we’re so used to seeing Kate wearing mini sequin dresses, that this look is really refreshing on her, and I LOVE the hair.

She swapped the beachy braid for a beautiful bob.

It was a family affair as Goldie Hawn was there to support her daughter Kate.

She also brought the wow factor to the red carpet wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2008 fringed gown.

The legendary actress wore her dress with a Dennis Basso’s white mink capelet.

Fergie can do no wrong at the moment.

Whether she’s wearing a Preen mini or this gorgeous Marchesa Resort 2010 Grecian gown she continues to blow me away.

She was one of my faves on this carpet.

I love how she paired her look with silver sparkling accessories.

Madonna and Lourdes Leon arrived in Dolce & Gabbana looks – of course.

Madonna wore a very typical Dolce & Gabbana corset dress with black elbow length gloves. (yawn)

Daughter Lourdes wore a lace Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 skirt with a black bustier and pearl necklaces paired with Doc Martin boots and a leather jacket to toughen up her look.

Very early 80s Madonna.

We’ve been crying out for Marion Cotillard to grace the “Nine” red carpet with her presence and here she is.

Of course she didn’t let us down as she looked stunning wearing a strapless white column Dior gown, which she accessorised with long beaded Chopard necklaces and a black Judith Leiber clutch.

I would’ve preferred her without the necklaces, so we could marvel at the beautiful detail on her bodice.

Nicole Kidman’s Prada puff ball dress was accented with floral appliqués.

It wasn’t my favourite look on this red carpet, but much improved from the previous post.

Her strawberry blonde locks were swept to into a side bun with a piece framing her face.

Penelope Cruz looked gorgeous adding a burst of colour to this red carpet.

Her red satin Chanel Couture gown wrapped around her gorgeous body, with a draped detail across the front and a jeweled detail on the hip.

I’m loving the waves.

Like the rest of the cast Pen was glittering with Chopard jewels.

Naomi Watts was by far my favourite on this red carpet wearing a Marchesa sculpted sheath dress.

Factor in that divine raspberry, those beautiful fold details on her shoulders, that sexy peplum on her waist and the stunning silhouette and I’m in LOVE.

Head over heels.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen looked stylish on this star studded red carpet.

Mary-Kate opted for a black gown, but added a bit of colour with a harlequin jacket and a bright blue Maia N oversized clutch.

Ashley opted for all black barring her mustard Manolo Blahnik heels.

I loved her feathered coat which is very similar to the Topshop feather coat I’ve been cruising.
